Thread: Lardarius Webb

  1. #1

    Lardarius Webb



    I'm coming around to the safety thing...maybe a hybrid safety/corner.

    IMHO, he just isn't a corner. He's a good football player though and should be on the field in some shape form or fashion. Unfortunately, it just looks like he may be a tweener.

    Maybe have him put on another 10 lbs or so and try him at safety next year? Maybe be a nickle/dime safety?

    Even last week, we all thought he had a good game with the 11 tackles, but corners making that many tackles means that they are completing a lot of passes on you.

    I wasn't big on the safety thing before due to his size, but I mean it's apparent to me that he is a good football player, just not that good of a corner...so we may have to find other ways to use him.

    Well the truth is Jimmy Smith and Chris Carr are our two best cover guys (we hope with Smith, obviously). They're also injured.

    I like him fine as a DB, he should not be returning punts. He makes very poor decisions back there.

    Webb is a much better CB than Foxworth.

    he's about as good as they have right now aside from CW

    He hits like a safety and I'm sure he'd do it if he was asked, because that seems to play to his strength (punching people's lights out).

    I heard him talk about it in an interview right after he was drafted.

    When asked, he said he'd been put at CB (not by the Ravens; he'd just been drafted & this would have been about college coaches) because, with the way he plays, he'd have a very short career at safety. Too much time in the meat grinder for a guy his size.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Re: Ladarious Webb

    The only issues with Webb are that his off-coverage needs work and he struggles against more physical receivers. He is still young and has time to develop.

    Chuck Pagano is just going to have to be even more selective, given the opponent, of when he brings his safeties up. Chris Carr, in all honesty, wouldn't have done much better. He does not give up too many major plays, but he is always giving up too much ground.

    I wasn't talking about making the move now...I realize that he and CW were not only the best we had, but pretty much all we had/have until Carr and Smith are healthy.

    I'm talking about maybe making the move next season...especially since Zibby and Ruki will be UFA's.

    Re: Ladarious Webb

    In regards to safety play, is Pollard that bad in pass protection? Zibby looks lost, slow and unable to compete. He is a reason for a lot of the failed pass D yesterday IMO.

    Pollard was ran out of Houston due to his pass coverage "abilities".

    I don't think he is the answer when it comes to covering someone. He is an awesome blitzer though...

    Here are his issues.

    1) He struggles in man to man.
    2) He plays too soft in zone.
    3) He is too small to jam receivers at the line
    4) He is too small to break up passes thrown where receivers need to catch the ball at its highest point.

    Here are his strengths.

    1) He's an above average tackler (which is good given the number of balls that get completed on him).
    2) He's a solid blitzer from the secondary
    3) Special Teams
    4) Dreadlocks

    I think that's a pretty fair assessment so far of what he has shown.

    Let me rephrase. I am aware why he is no longer on Houston, my point is I don't think he could have played any worse than Zibby. Zibby is running around like he has cement in his shoes, and to me more important he does not lay the wood.

    I would have liked to see us put Pollard out there just so he could level a receiver that came across the middle, to make them think twice about doing it. Did you see the hit Robinson put on Maclin last night, you think that hit Maclin took did not play into why he dropped a crucial 4th down pass, he felt foot steps.

    I'm not saying Pollard would have shut down the passing attack, but having a guy out there that couldn't cover or lay a hit tells me it's time for a change!

    Same criticisms apply to the following Ravens defenders:
